    Setting notification to update content


    I am wondering if there is a function in Umbraco v7 whereby I can set an alert/notification which reminds me that a certain page/document of the website needs updating.

    E.g. a policy on the website needs to be updated in January 2019 and a notification is sent, maybe a month before to alert me of this impending deadline.

    Does anyone know if this is possible? And, if so, some assistance and guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Will

    Hi Will,

    Welcome to Our!
    I haven’t heard of any package that adds this functionality into Umbraco, so it would be something that you would have to build yourself.

    I can think of multiple approaches to build this feature, but a simple one could be:

    1. Add a datepicker to your nodes that let’s you set an expiry date.
    2. Make a service that searches the ExternalIndex.
      Have the service look for the expiry field and fetch the node id on the nodes where the date matches. Then trigger a notification-email if the expiry date matches the date for when the service is running.

    If you don't know how to work with Examine, then I suggest you have a look at these pages:
